Tribute to one of the best bands that ever was …

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people’s hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it’s bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I’m loved when I’m completely by myself alone
I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can’t appreciate real love until you’ve been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye
I believe you can’t control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires
I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can’t appreciate real love until you’ve been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye
I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity
I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can’t appreciate real love until you’ve been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye

– Savage Garden, Affirmation, 1999

Kandisa (Music)

Assignment completion time saw us friends hot swapping music.
Bored with the conventional music albums, we were digging up and ’Different’ music that we had.
Thats when my friend lent me his ’Indian Safari’ Tape. The tape was a mixed compilations of various artistes … all good songs … but the one that really caught my attention was ’Kandisa’ by Indian Ocean .
I was hooked. I just had to have the cassette.
The next day, I plopped into music world and bought the cassette for 65 bucks !
The attendant told me the CD costs Rs. 395/- ( wow ! )
The cassette is just so amazingly refreshing. It is the kind of music that you mightn’t have heard lots. Its totally alternative. New vibes.
Their music is somewhat in the league of ’Alms for Shanti’ but different in their own way. Very soothing, very refreshing … so earthy !
The cassette starts of with ’Kya Maloom’ which is an amazing track. The other great tracks which I really loved were ’Kandisa’ which is the title track ( last on side B ). This is actually a Syrian Catholic Hymn which has been sung for more than 1000 years and the band has done a really amazing job recreating the magic.
Another really great track – ’Ma Rewa’ is a folksy song about the Narmada and really peppy. ’’Hille Re’’, ’’Leaving Home’’ are some of the other tracks that I adore.
The cassette has a total of 7 tracks.
Most of the songs don’t have a lot of vocals … only lots of music which is fantastic.
The music will appeal to people of all ages, cultures, languages, and tastes.
To a person who swears by Metallica and one who loves N’Sync and group.
Everyone in my family ( including my mom ) just loved the music.
The music is perfect for listening anytime, anyplace.
It transports you to a place … a green place … you under the shadows of the trees on a lazy, sunny afternoon, relaxing, with the green grass under your bare feet and a the sound of water flowing from babbling brook completing the perfect picture.
Thats where you go when you listen to the songs.
The album is marketed by Times Music, but hasn’t had a lot of publicity ( as you will later read from the cassette cover booklet ), so not many people know about the album. But all those who own it, will treasure it … I assure you.
The cassette will make the perfect gift for anyone and also the perfect music to accompany you on those long drives on a picnic.
Just go grab a copy, I assure you … you’ll love it.
Happy listening …
